,W e-% I 1 'i WASHINGTON LETTER. "Zezula" Visits the Postoffice De partment and "Transcribes Her Observations." 4 The Dead Letter Office the Most Interesting: Feature—The "Museum." WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 11.—[Special correspondence.]—The branch of the gov ernment in which the people of the coun try are more popularly interested is the postoffice department, it being intimately connected with the private life of the mil lions who, through the daily medium of private correspondence, find happiness in communication with distant friends, or success in business by the interchange of written information. Having recently had the pleasure df exploring the mammoth postal palace of this city, I transcribe a few of my observa tions for the benefit of the TRIBUNE'S readers. Postmaster General Yilas, the head of the postoffice department, is the handsome man of the cabinet, and an exception to the usual rule, that masculine beauty is seldom allied with brains. His good- looks do not prevent him fiom being one of the most efficient and intellectual members of the cabinet and since exceptions prove the rule, the same is still further exemplified in the person of First Assistant Postmaster General Stevenson, who is a tall, hand some, pleasant and courteous gentlemen, and yet a pains taking and efficient officer. But what strikes me as most remarkable in the postoffice department is the fact that the attentive courtesy to strangers shown by the heads of departments in this insti tution, prevails also among the subordinate officers and clerks in the building, and in this respect the postoffice department is an agreeable contrast to the pension office. But then the pension building is new and fresh, and some of the pension officials are new and fresh too, and perhaps by the time their magnificent new building is finished they will have become sufficiently accus tomed to the dizzy altitude of their official state to be ordinarily polite to common people. But to return to the postoffice depart ment. We had here the pleasure of meet ing Mr. O'Toole, chief clerk, and Mr. H. A. Drury, corresponding clerk for the territo ries, the gentleman whom Dakota people usually meet when they seek information in regard to postal matters in their terri tory, and through Mr. Drury's courtesy I was shown through the dead letter office and museum. The dead letter office is the most inter esting room in this department. Elder Evans, a veteran clerk in this department, appointed in 1829, remembers when the en tire work of this office was done by two men now 140 employes are necessary. An average of 16,000 dead letters and par cels are received per day. At a small table the letters are first received and examined by several clerks to see if the postmasters have made mistakes and if it is still possible to forward them to their in tended destination. Those that are hope lessly "dead" are passed over to a long table, at which twelve clerks, who open about 2,000 letters per day each, are busy with sharp, thin bladed knives opening the letters to ascertain if they contain valuable inelosures. Strange to say, money to the value of $30,000 or $40,000 yearly is taken from these lost letters, with drafts to the •lue of $20,000. Ninety-eight per cent of this is returned to the owners. Ladies in the galleries are engaged in that laudable work. At another table, clerks are busy examining and opening parcels, and these •contain all known articles of merchandise and trinkets of all kinds, and there is some thing pathetic in their stray litter, memen toes of love and friendly remembrance that for the lack of a little care on the part of the senders, or the omission of a few postage stamps, have found their way Iiere. From 12,000 to 18,000 postal cards per week are sent herefrom the New York of fice alone, with some 10,000 letters and packages weekly. Many of these dead letters have no address at all, and these frequently contain money. I asked Mr. Smith, the intelligent clerk who piloted me through this room, if it were true, as so often charged by the press, that the major ity of these missent, undirected and neg lected letters were mailed to women, and he answered "No," as the majority, strange to say, of those with money inelosures were mailed by keen and active men of business, who, in a moment of haste or for getfulness, omitted the important act of di recting their most iaiportant correspon dence—a piece of information for which Zezula" is extremely obliged to Mr. Smith, as it sets at rest another newspaper slander on the business habits of that thoughtful sex. The museum attached to the dead letter office has a unique collection of unmailable articles and those that have been confis cated by reason of violation of the postal laws. Among these latter is a loaded pis tol and a large rattlesnake that was en route to Germany via the United States mails, inclosed in a perforated tin box. He was mercifully killed, and now fills a glass jar on the musuem shelves. Another article sent here for non-pay ment of postage is an iron hitching post. The horse attached to the same, has prob ably been stolen by some defaulting post master, who had no use for the hitching post, but wanted the horse to expedite his night to Canada. Another interesting curiosity is a small envelope, the torn end disclosing a lock of human hair, and la belled this contains my hair Charles J. Gittear." Hair! It resembles as much bristles sheared from the spine of a pig as hair from the poll of a human being. The history of this hursite curiosity is that it was sent by mail to a wealthy lady, with a request for a $1,000 in return. The lady de clined to receive it, and it was sent here—it being impossible to return it to the sender, at the expiration of the thirty days deten tion—because the poor deluded maniac had then gone unwillingly to a land outside of the dead letter office. ZEZULA. Bat the World Still Mora. LONDON, Feb. 17.—Mr. Joseph Chamber lain, president of the local government board, has quarreled with Gladstone on the Greek policy of the government. If the "British fleet coerce the Greek, Mr. Cham berlain will resign his seat in the cabinet Two German, one French, one Italian and one Austrian men-of-war have joined the British squadron in Sunda Bay. The duke of Edinberg commands the fleet Mr. Watterson's Condition. LOUISVILLE, February 18.—Mr. Watter son had a good sleep and at 6 o'clock was more quiet and somewhat better—pulse, 116 temperature, 101. He had been deliri ous most of the day. GENERAL SBEHXAX EXPLAINS What He Meant by that Grant-Smith Fx presslon in His ^Letter. PITTSBURGH, Feb. 18.—General W. T. Sherman arrived in the city today from the funeral of General Hancock. Speaking of the newspaper strictures upon his refer ences to Generals Grant and Smith, he said: "The sentence occurs in a letter written by me to Lieutenant Scott, liaving charge of the records at Washington. I knew that I could not have written any thing intended as a disparagement of Gen eral Grant General Smith was a brave of ficer. I knew that he had hurt his leg in getting into a yawL The wound disabled him and terminated fatally. When he found he was unable to take charge of the forces he sent for General Grant In writing that sentence 1 meant that General Grant had gone down, down,* down, and now the opportunity had presented itself which gave him a chance to rise by his own merit If Smith had lived it is*' questionable whether the opportunity would have come to Grant by which he was enabled to bring into play the forces of his character. Frye never made a record. He was never in North Carolina. His record is one on paper, and to keep that up he must seek notoriety. It is ridiculous to suppose that I meant to detract from Grant's fame. The sentence occurs in a letter written to Scott to obtain some records which 1 de sired to use in preparing a eulogy of Gen. Grant, which I delivered before his old comrades of the army of the Tennessee at their reunion, in Chicago, on September 9 and 10, 1888. This letter was written three days before, on September 6th, as it was necessary that I should have some data. It is not at all probable that I would seek to detract from his excellence when I was preparing his eulogy." General Sherman insists that nearly every thing he does or says is distorted, and frequently appear in the newspapers in an entirely different light from his own expressions or thoughts. Reciprocity Wanted. WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.—Senator McMil lan presented a petition signed by the citizens of St. Paul and Minneapolis, pray ing for the appointment of commissioners to confer with Canada for a reciprocity treaty. Among the St Paul signers are numerous members of the chamber of com merce. He also presented petitions from citizens of Faribault for a woman suffrage bill. Sure! ST. PAUL, February 18.—The case of Frank Mallory against the Pioneer Press for damages has been settled in the su preme court, by that body refusing the or derfor a new trial. In the dicision the court says that in receiving an item of criminal news a paper must publish the name of the complainant. Wine, Women and the Gallows, ST. PAUL, Feb. 17.—Today the governor fixed the date for the execution of John Hutchinson, sentenced for tne murder of Archie McLean, of East Grand Forks, The murder was committed in Hutchin son's house of ill fame. The date set is April 23d and the execution will take place in Crookston. They Went. NICOLAUS, CALA., February 18.—Early this morning a body of masked men com pelled the Chinese, numbering forty-four, to leave the town. They were put on board the steamer De Knight, and, notwithstand ing the protest of the captain of the vessel, he was forced to take them as passengers for Sacramento. Those Apclies Again. SANTA FE, N. M., February 18.—Eight sheep herders on a ranch of Solomon Lu na's, in Valencia county, N. M., near the Arizona line, had a fight with Apaches, and all the herders were killed.

The citizens of Panama will welcome de Lesseps with a $10,000 banquet The democrats on the eighty-third ballot nominated State Senator T. R. Hudd, of Gieen Bay, Wis., to succeed Rankin, de ceased. A dispatch from Pierre says the ice is breaking up in the Missouri, and if the present weather continues, the channel will be clear in a few days. The cost of draping the public buildings at Washington on the occasion of the death of ex-President Grant was $2,412,and for the death of Vice President Hendricks $5,475. Nathan Smith has been appointed to suc ceed Smith D. Fry (of newspaper confes sion fame), as presidential appointment clerk in the office of first assistant postmas ter general. The crater of the volcano of Colima, Mexico, has diminished in size, but the eruptions still continue. The inhabitants of the surrounding country are fearful of coming disaster. At the tax payers' meeting in Valley City,it was claimed that the county was over $1,000,000 in debt, and that the county com missioners had illegally expended over $14,000 besides levying an illegal tax of $7,000. Tower City Herald: The gall of South Dakota endeavoring to get admitted as the state of Dakota, and calling the north half Lincoln, is a good deal like a doctor nam ing the baby—and is meeting with fully as much opposition. There are so many dogs in St Paul and they have become such a nuisance, that the Pioneer Press concludes there is no reason, either in the lack of numbers or offensive ne8s. why they should not presently be come as historic as those of Constantino ple. Two weeks ago, a man named Helmar, of Wilmot, Dakota, suicided in St Paul, leaving a wife and two children and a son by a former wife. Now the step-son has married his father's widow, and the family happiness is restored. The old man killed himself just to give the young man a chance. Mr. Palmer, the theater manager, says: "The bulk of the performances on the stage is degrading and pernicious. The manag ers strive to come just as near the line as possible without flagrantly breaking the law. There never have been costumes worn on a stage of this city either in a the ater, hall or 'dive' so improper as those that clothe some of the chorus in recent comic opera productions." He says in regard to the female performers: "It is not a question whether they can sing, but just how little they will consent to wear." A saw without teeth, that will cut a steel rail in two in two minutes, can be seen in operation in the Cen tral Hudson shops, in Greenbush, says the Albany Express. The saw is run by a ninety horse power engine, and makes 2,000 revolutions in a minute. A disc of sheet iron, without teeth, will cut the hard est kind of steel, provided it makes 8,000 revolutions in a minute. Why should ve locity enable sheet iron to overcome steel in this wonderful manner The Scientific American says such a saw cuts steel with out touching it. Senator Clark Dead. ST. PAUL, February 18.—Benson, Minn., special to the Pioneer Press: Senator Zeb Clark died here today, of consumption. ST.
